The 2019 vintage is the result of a concatenation of periods of hot weather alternating with timely, moderate rainfall. Delivering Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes of ideal size and concentration, the harvest proved congruous with our expectations. Remarkably enough, the complexity and sophistication of an exceptional Cos d’Estournel could already be detected in the grapes at harvest time.
Our terroir proved primordial, as its proximity to the Gironde Estuary and the ocean allowed it to compensate for extreme weather conditions. And, having adapted to low rainfall early in the season, our vines were able to tolerate
the unusually dry weather.
